I am a storyteller.
Whether it’s a hard-hitting investigative piece or a feature article on a local, I aim to tell a story accurately, fairly and well.
The story that is my least favorite to tell is my own. So, when my boss told me I had to write an article on myself, my cheeks got hot and I felt a familiar urge to hide under my desk or run away.
